Two works by Stephane Villafane

Stephane Villafane paints pleasing abstract landscapes. For the last several years, his pieces have been titled simply by the date on which they were composed, a habit of refreshing frankness and good sense for art in this genre.

In these two, quite recent, pieces, there is little sense of it being any sort of landscape (as indeed they may not be). However, the colors: green, brown, blue, overlaying each other in broad strokes of paint over the canvas, present pleasing and earthy textures that while decorative, are neither gaudy nor pretentious; one can admire them as one might admire the grain of a wooden beam.
